Accurascale Reveal New MK1 Suburban Coaches

Posted by Warren Bennett on

Accurascale have this morning announced a new run of OO Gauge MK1 Suburban Coaches, to be released Q1 2025.

Mark 1 56ft 11” non-gangway suburban coaches in Maroon livery have been announced, following much demand from modellers.

Production of these coaches begins shortly, with the decorated samples above provided when Accurascale first received samples from the blue and carmine production run (with these being early samples, changes are to be made!)

12 versions with Accurascale's usual high specification to be released priced at £64.95 each.

All versions listed below, pre order now with FREE UK POSTAGE from Rails with only a select version of each version to be available
The Model

Initially launched in the summer of 2022 after a long development period behind the scenes, Accurascale’s tooling suite of Mark 1 suburban coaches allows modellers to recreate an authentic rake of these workhorses for the first time in ready-to-run format and offered a 21st century rendition of these essential vehicles. Featuring an exquisite level of detail and an unbeatable specification including full interior lighting, fully detailed interior and a museum quality finish, they were offered in BR all-over carmine and BR all-over rail blue.

With the first batch of carmine and blue coaches nearing completion at the factory and are due in stock in Q2 of this year, Accurascale can turn our attention to the maroon coaches almost straight away.
First up, Accurascale are offering the Midland Region BS, C, S and SO in Maroon, without and without lining. The lined Midland vehicles typically carried their lining lower than the BR spec, to match against the lined Stanier stock. Accurascale will also be covering the Scottish Region, with a BS, C and S in Maroon, all lined, but in BR and Stanier positions. Being based on circa 1962 photos, the First Class yellow stripe has now appeared.
